Column: Legislature needs to obey own law

On today’s front page, I have an article looking back at the Kershaw County school board’s April 10 meeting and a presentation on the Kershaw County School District’s (KCSD) proposed 2018-19 budget. The story’s hook, if you will, is reflected in the headline: “KCSD budget tweaks come with criticism of lawmakers; Legislature continues to thwart own law on school funding, says Wilson.” During the presentation, KCSD Chief Financial Officer Donnie Wilson pointed out that while the senate’s version of the budget includes a $60 increase to the base student cost to $2,485, it is still $533 per student short of where it is supposed to be.
